Do you own or want to buy a DJI products but want help using and flying them? We will walk you through software updates, proper flying and advanced flying techniques. Whether you have a Phantom , Inspire or any other products we can help.

Our flat rate of instruction for approx 2 hours only – $150.00

SECTION 1: UNDERSTANDING YOUR EQUIPMENT

The first segment of the training course focuses on understanding the components of DJI Drones. Students will learn about transmitter, LiPo battery safety, gimbals, and the Drone itself. While individual pieces of equipment will be discussed, the focus will be on the way that these parts work in concert.

SECTION 2: SOFTWARE & REMOTE FUNCTIONS

Properly configuring the software and flight controller on your phantom is one of the most crucial steps in the pre-flight process. The small computer on board the phantom is responsible for thousands of calculations per second. This section will help you understand the important calibration steps in the software, help you to understand the different settings available to you, and how to program your remote with basic features.

SECTION 3: BATTERY CHARGING AND SAFETY

The fuel for the drones flight comes in the form of high capacity LiPo batteries. This section will explain all the differences between the batteries that come within your phantom kit as well as different charging practices for each. In addition, this section will go over the safety procedures to use when charging batteries and what to do in the event a LiPo pack fails.

SECTION 4: PRINCIPLES OF FLIGHT AND FLIGHT MODES

Generating lift, propwash, turbulence, air pressure, and orientation are all important factors that account for your craft in flight. In this section students will learn the principles behind their craft and its ability to fly through the air. Students will also learn about the different modes of flight their craft is capable of and how each mode differs from the rest.

SECTION 5: FLIGHT SAFETY

The best drone pilots are safe pilots. DJI Drone owners and operators have an obligation to only fly in safe conditions. But how can one know what is safe or unsafe? In this class, students will learn important safety practices including record keeping, equipment maintenance, and flight plans. You will learn how to use FAA sectional charts, log your drone flights, proper techniques for safety spotters and the use of use of aviation VHF radios.

SECTION 6: TAKE-OFFS AND LANDINGS

This section is where the fun begins. Students will leave the classroom environment and take to the sky. Once in the field students will learn the correct procedures for take-off and landing of their craft. The preflight checklist, compass calibration, LED sequences, and important awareness techniques will be covered.

SECTION 7: LEARNING HOW TO FLY
To know how to pilot your Drone you must understand the scientific principles that make flight possible. Knowing what causes lift, drag, turbulence and the physics behind Unmanned Aerial Systems will give students a deeper appreciation for the Drone while also making them significantly better pilots.

SECTION 8: BASICS OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
After students understand the basics and safety of flying they can begin to think about photography and video with their craft. This section will go over all settings of the Gopro camera, basic shot framing, flight maneuvers, and target tracking. The world of photography is vast and ever expanding. This section will give you a basic understanding of photography and provide you with the tools to continue to improve on your skills.
